Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman announced today that Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron has agreed to make Avatar 2 and 3 as his next films.

Cameron, who had always viewed “Avatar” as the creation of a new world and mythology, will begin work on the scripts early next year with an eye towards commencing production later in 2011. Cameron will decide if he will shoot the films back-to-back after he completes the scripts, but the release of the first, as yet untitled sequel, is targeted for December 2014, with the third film contemplated for a December 2015 release.

JAMES CAMERON on the focus of an ‘AVATAR’ sequel:

JAMES CAMERON’s ‘AVATAR’: Trailer Posted, Official Movie Site Goes Live

Caught the trailer in the theater before ‘SAW VI’. Cameron’s back is (again) against the wall with the rumored $200-300 million+ budget for the movie. But in his defense he had the same budget issues with TITANIC and then knocked it out of the ballpark with the stunning result.

The bottom line? THRALL WORLD couldn’t help but notice how incredibly REAL the aliens looked in a good portion of the trailer. It really was remarkable and will probably make or break the movies success. No SHREK or HULK cartoons here. They have upped the photo-realistic CGI to an eye-bending level and made THRALL WORLD a believer and we can’t help but wonder how much more of a difference watching it in 3D will make.

But we do hope the “going native” plot (a la DANCES WITH WOLVES, TORAL RECALL, THE LAST SAMURAI) has more behind it than the main character sympathizing with the aliens because an “evil” corporation wants a valuable gem which only seems to exist right underneath the aliens home.

Set to open in conventional 3D theaters and IMAX 3D on December 18th, 2009 and written and directed by James Cameron (TERMINATOR, TITANIC), ‘AVATAR’ stars; Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, and Giovanni Ribisi, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Peter Mensah, Laz Alonso, Wes Studi, Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald.

MICHAEL MANN’S Updated ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ Cast Announced

Director Michael Mann has set Marion Cotillard (La Vie en rose), Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Jason Clarke to join Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in Public Enemies.

Variety says the Depression-era crime drama gets under way in Chicago on March 10 for Universal Pictures.

The Oscar-nominated Cotillard will play Billie Frechette, the lover of the country’s most notorious gangster, John Dillinger (Depp).

Tatum will play outlaw Pretty Boy Floyd, Ribisi will play Alvin Karpis, Dorff is near a deal to play Homer Van Meter, and Clarke will play John “Red” Hamilton. That quartet repped a Dillinger gang that knocked off banks all over the Midwest during the Depression.

Bale plays Melvin Purvis, who was tapped by FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover to lead a manhunt that established the FBI as the country’s first federal police force after the G-Men killed Dillinger outside the Biograph Theater in 1934.

Can’t wait. Michael Mann of course was the mastermind behind the 80’s era series, ‘Miami Vice’, it’s more recent reimagining, as well as an under-appreciated version of Hannibal Lecter in a movie called ‘MANHUNTER’ that was released five years before Jonathan Demme’s ‘The Silence of the Lambs’.

Mann is also responsible for one of my all time favorite crime dramas, ‘HEAT’, which featured Al Pacino’s obsessive workaholic LA detective tracking down Robert DeNiro’s lifetime criminal and featured the most bad ass bank robbery scene and shootout ever filmed. Mann knows his stuff when it comes to crime and when I caught the recent DVD rerelease of ‘HEAT’ his commentary provided a glimpse at the incredible amount of detail he paints his characters with.

Dillinger, Purvis, and their legendary showdown are in excellent hands.
